uberprinnyakatux Posted August 28, 2010 Share Posted August 28, 2010 Hello, I am setting up a file/virtual machine server. The old hard ware was not cutting it so I am transfering to newish hardware. The old raid array worked just fine with these 3 hard drives, however on the new hardware the array lasts for about 2 seconds when initializing and goes straight to saying "Error". The new hardware uses an nVidia chip for the sata. The nVidia application has no explanation of what failed. It always seems to be one drive and I can rotate drives to different ports and it seems to be the 3rd drive in the array. The old: c2d @ 1.8ghz 4gb of mem asus p5e-vm hdmi motherboard The new 2x opteron 2216 HE procs 2.4ghz 8gb of memory tyan thunder n6650w s2915 motherboard The common: 3x 2tb western digital green edition (wd20eads-00r6b0) (raid 5) 2x 80gb western digital sata drives (wd800bd-22mra1 / wb800jd-75msa3) (mirrored) Thanks, Shane O Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
